of the romney for virginia campaign. guest: i would just quote joe biden -- the middle class has been buried over the past four years. they have been buried because this president's economic policies failed. the president said when he came in his trillion dollars stimulus would get unemployment well under where it is now. he said that he was going to cut the debt that was $10 trillion in half, down to $5 trillion. now it is $16 children. he failed by a factor of three times what he said he was going to do. his health care bill, a huge government monstrosity, not something done at the state level, would end up costing us $2,500 more in premiums when he said it was going to be less -- that it would be $2,500 less. the president himself said if he did not get this done, if he did not turn this economy around in three years it would be a one- term proposition. i agree with him, and that is why we are looking to mitt romney -- i was talking before about how romney cut the budget in massachusetts. on a bipartisan basis with 87% legislature and that the same time he cut taxes 19 times. do get -- to

biden item you himself, they have to tone down the rhetoric. they can't bare their teeth and bring out the barbs that they have been for how long this political campaign has been going on. you also had romney surrogates with full throated attacks on the president and on democrats today. so, you know, it was a very short window when the political--the politicking the campaign you trail rhetoric was toned down and we're seeing it come back already. >> eliot: look, everything that these individuals do, and rightly so between now and tuesday, is meant to project an image to the public saying vote vote for me as president or vice president because i have the values and judgments that you need in the oval office. i don't think there is anything wrong with that, but david one of the interesting dances over the past couple of days is chris christie and the president. was this a marriage of convenience or is there interest there that brings these individuals together there. >> non-politics and disaster is the best type of politics. look at those images out of new jersey with chris christie and

, for example, jill biden is coming. the day before the election, michelle obama is coming in here. so we are having a tremendous amount of campaigning going on here. >> bret: okay, joe. go to ohio. it seems to be ground zero. the real clear politics average, there are nine polls included in this. 48.9% for president obama. 46.6% for romney. it seems almost every day there is something new out of ohio. what are you seeing on the ground there? >> i like north carolina. the candidates have been in ohio so much they literally have become pests. they will be here through the weekend. obama will be here monday in columbus with jay-z and bruce springstein. they are pulling out all the stops. what i see on the ground is a close race. i saw a poll today i trust that has dead even. the candidates now are in posture of going through the bases. because they are only about 2% of the voters here who are undecided. p there are hundds of volunteers doing that. i expect we'll see another 2% election here. if romney loses the presidency because he loses ohio by 2%. he will wake up every day for the rest o
is inaccurate, including joe biden who called it flagrantly dishonest. my next guest says romney has it right. here to explain, associate fellow for the national legal and policy center. great to have you back. always a pasure to have you on the show. this all came out of a report in bloomberg. let me read you what the road and read your response. european sales, the ceos, sergio marchini, considering building chrysler models in italy, including jeeps, for export to north america. now, is that true or is that false? >> that is absolutely true, and prior to that there was a bloomberg report that did say that the yacht was going to be building jeeps in china, possibly old jeeps, so that is where the governor romney got that information. now, there was one slight inaccuracies under the romney and where he said the obama administration sold chrysler to the italians. he didn't. he gave it to them. the only thing they paid up front was some technology they transferred. did not even pay any money for it. gerri: you're saying possibly the ad is to kind. >> yes. it is. it is true that china part of it
comstock, who is one of the chairs of the romney for virginia campaign. guest: i would just quote joe biden -- the middle class has years. they have been buried because this president's economic policies failed. the president said when he came would get unemployment wellhe said that he was going to cut the debt that was $10 trillion in half, down to $5 trillion. now it is $16 children. he failed by a factor of three times what he said he was going to do. his health care bill, a huge government monstrosity, not level, would end up costing us $2,500 more in premiums when he that it would be $2,500 less. the president himself said if he did not get this done, if he did not turn this economy around in three years it would be a one-term proposition. why we are looking to mitt romney -- i was talking before about how romney cut the budget in massachusetts. on a bipartisan basis with 87% legislature and that the same time he cut taxes 19 times. do get -- to get massachusetts democrats to cut taxes, you have to come in with good policies which governor romney understand as a business person and und
biden. [ laughter ] there you go. babombum. >> a couple of things about this storm that i have noticed. when bloomberg comes out and says stay away from here. i have got problems. i hope people this is what should have said with katrina. they have used the ploy and bush. hey i was told not to come in there that they didn't need the gridlock. this proves it. if you think. >> bill: let me set it up, that bloomberg told president obama and dennis miller not to come to new york. miller defied him but the president did not because the president is doing lump lomb lombado. >> in a heavily populated metropolitan area. they both start with new, new orleans or new york. the one mayor was hiding out in the penthouse trying to stay soft. >> bill: you couldn't freeze traffic zones because traffic isn't moving. >> i was 10 blocks away, billy. i gave up after 40 minutes and just walked over. >> bill: you can't go anywhere because the subways are out. >> just remember that folks when they tell you they were heartless and bush was heartless. they don't want the president in major area. good for bloomb
